Sharing ‘LeBron James’, the new track was inspired by Billy McFarland of Fyre Festival and convincing his mate to do whatever it takes, cough, for some Evian water fame.
Talking to us for our November 2019 issue, frontman Chris Bailey explained of the inspiration for the track: “So, [Billy] scams everybody and fucks up the whole Fyre Festival and it all goes wrong. Afterwards he’s out on bail and then immediately starts scamming more people in like really obvious ways while he’s so under the microscope! It’s so dumb to me! He starts emailing the people who bought tickets and offers them things that aren’t real, and one of them is dinner with LeBron James which is so funny to me. It’s about those kinda fucks who do those things to people. Hustlers and conmen.”
